Tomorrow’s Construction Conference

Tuesday, 11th October 2022 0800hrs – Wednesday, 12th October 2022 1700hrs

Royal Horticultural Halls, 80 Vincent Square, London SW1P 2PB

A conference that will ultimately help your organisation cut costs, save time, drive quality and reduce liabilities on major development schemes in the future. Find out what construction might look like in the 23rd Century.

Famously lagging behind agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting for digitisation, the construction sector is facing a technology enabled revolution. Public sector leadership will be attending and wanting to hear who can support the acceleration of their regeneration ambitions, contractors will be coming along to share insights on their cutting-edge delivery techniques and showcasing the digitisation taking place on site, developers will be unveiling key technological expectations on supply chain should they want to win work on their projects.

Tomorrow’s Construction will support the industry in meeting progressive visions such as those laid out in the IPA’s Transforming Infrastructure: Roadmap to 2030 and The Construction Playbook, as the sector upskills and transforms to deliver better, and to meet demanding Net Zero carbon targets.

Over the coming months we’ll be working to announce the programme for the event. Over 100 speakers will join us on the auditorium stage throughout the two day event. Here’s a look at some of the activity taking place:

Main Stage

Main Stage

09:15 – 09:45

Keynote: 2030 And The Transformative Road Beyond

A senior figure and influencer from the industry will take to the stage to set the tone for the conversation ahead.

Main Stage

09:45 – 10:45

The Size of the Prize – What Will Tomorrow's Construction Sector Look Like, And How Does The Industry Embrace It?

How can technology-driven innovation support sustainability, certainty, better decision making and work-winning? An expert panel will quantify the opportunity, assess the state of UK construction’s technology adoption and illustrate with examples how embracing the right solutions can achieve these goals.

David Hancock – Senior Commercial Advisor, Cabinet Office

Andrew Cubitt – Procurement & Supply Chain Director, HS2 Ltd

Annette Pass – Head of Innovation, National Highways

Main Stage

11:15 – 12:15

CO₂Tech – How Technology Can Make a Difference

Few industries are positioned to have a greater impact on the UK meeting its Net Zero targets than construction and technology lies at the heart of the sector’s ability to deliver positive outcomes. This panel will examine how organisations can maximise the potential of technology to bridge the gap in both new builds, and existing estates, to reduce carbon and energy use as well as cost.

Kevin McHugh – Director, Pre-Construction, Greystar Europe Holdings

Sanyalax Morrison – Strategic Procurement Director, National Highways

Rafe Bertram – Sustainability Facilitator, Meridian Water and the London Borough of Enfield

Main Stage

13:00 – 13:15

Keynote: Upskill To Transform

Upskilling is crucial for the successful digitalisation and modernisation of the sector – and this inspirational keynote will endeavour to spark change within the industry.

Main Stage

13:15 – 14:15

Transforming the Skills Landscape – Evolving and Future Proofing the Construction Industry

If ConTech promises to revolutionise the industry, upskilling its workforce is fundamental to grasping that opportunity. Gain insight from best-in-class examples that illustrate how organisations have upskilled and successfully implemented critical change management programmes.

Dr Janet Young – Government Head of Property Profession, Government Property Function

Main Stage

14:45 – 15:45

Meeting Client Expectations for Project Technology Adoption – The Reality vs The Aspirational

Supply chains members have often been guilty of looking to clients for direction on project tech-adoption. But while this may not have always been forthcoming, major customers are now beginning to demand next generation delivery through digital and offsite methodologies. Hear clients explain how their changing requirements and development strategies are set to reshape the industry and what your business must do to stay in step and benefit.

Melanie Leech CBE – Chief Executive, British Property Federation

Bruno Almeida Santos – Project Director, Far East Consortium

Neil Pennell – Head of Design, Innovation & Property Solutions, Landsec

Main Stage

Main Stage

09:05 – 09:45

Keynote and Interview with Nick Smallwood: The MMC Imperative

There’s a disconnect between the need to build and our ability to. Increasing urbanisation and demanding net zero targets mean the industry must deliver at previously unseen rates, yet construction remains a major contributor to carbon emissions. This keynote will set the scene for the role evolving construction methods must increasingly play to meet demand.

We’ll then have a one to one with Nick to delve into the role of technology in enabling new delivery approaches, including platforms and MMC, as well as the wider benefits that these methodologies offer beyond just improving project delivery.

Nick Smallwood – Chief Executive, Infrastructure and Projects Authority

Main Stage

09:45 – 10:45

Stepping Up – How Supply Chains Must Adapt to the World of Platforms, MMC and Offsite

As public and private sector clients increasingly look beyond traditional construction, a panel of experts assesses how technology can be an enabler rather than a barrier, which methodologies are most appropriate where, and the projects and sectors that are best suited to embracing a new approach.

Rosie Toogood – CEO, Legal & General Modular Homes

Fergus Harradence – Deputy Director – Construction, Department for Business, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy

Trudi Sully – Impact Director, Construction Innovation Hub

Tom Stocks – MMC Commercial Strategy Lead – New Hospital Programme, NHS

Main Stage

11:15 – 12:15

Using ConTech to Drive Value for the Public Purse

To maximise the potential of nearly £650bn of infrastructure investment over the next decade, UK construction will be required to meet the challenges of delivering infrastructure projects in the digital age. This panel explores technology-based delivery that positions quality and value over cost as part of a grander design that levels up the regions, regenerates communities and meets demanding carbon targets.

This session is sponsored by Mi Project Solutions

Emma-Jane Houghton – Commercial Director, New Hospital Programme: 40 hospitals by 2030, Cabinet Office

Yogesh Babbar – Chief Data Officer, Office of Government Property

Main Stage

13:00 – 14:00

Challenge Session – Can ConTech Help Deliver Asset Outcomes?

An industry that already grapples with delivering a performance-based approach now finds itself challenged to deliver one focussed on outcomes. If this is ever to be achievable then technology will be a fundamental element. This panel will therefore focus on what construction businesses must begin to consider, to meet evolving end user aspirations and deliver our built environment to the next level.

Ami Kotecha – Co-Founder & Head of Venture Investments, Amro Partners

Ian Gordon – Head of Data, Houses of Parliament Restoration and Renewal
